The new BeoSound Essence by Bang & Olufsen is a remote reinvented. Unlike unusually boring black boxes with rubber buttons people are accustomed to when thinking about a remote, the BeoSound Essence features fantastic design and great functionality.
This little, but beautiful device can be connected to any Bang & Olufsen active speaker and allows you to start playing the music or skip tracks with just single swipe of your finger. It is equipped with a shiny touch-sensitive surface and an aluminium wheel for volume adjustment.
However, the BeoSound Essence is more than just a remote - it is a link between your speakers and your music, regardless of its source. Thanks to support for AirPlay, DLNA, and Spotify Connect, the Essence can access your media library and stream your favourite tunes wirelessly.
The new BeoSound Essence will be available in April for $995.
